HOUSE OF COM[?] ONS. THE BUDGET. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 22 July 1854

HOUSE OF COM[M] ONS« THE BUDGET. In the House of Commons, on the 8th of May, the Chancellor of the Exchequer rose to make his financial statement. He adverted to the necessity which had existed for demanding a double Income tax, at a time when war was not declared. It was then impossible for the government to form a trustworthy estimate of the expenses of the war, but the complicated machinery of the Income-tax mad[e] it necessary to apply to Parliament early, in order that the get- ting in the required revenue might not be delayed. He had at that time asked what was then known to be requisite, but had also stated that his demand was not ade- quate to the purposes of war. It now be- came his duty to ask for the means of carrying on the war, but before he did so he thought it right to refute some accusa- tions which had been industriously laid against him both in and out of the House. The first charge he touched upon was that of having mismanaged the unfunded debt. He began with the ...

EUROPEAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 22 July 1854

EUROPEAN NEWS. In this days issue, we give our sum-     mary of late and interesting European News : The Power of England - A giant lives, in a fairy tale, who grew to his gigantic proportions through a long slumber. He was seen on the banks of a river, by the affrighted people of the neighbourhood, wondering at the reflec- tion of his own image, stretching his huge sinews, admiring his own burly limbs, and dancing a sort of wild war dance, in his own honour. Honest John Bull is just in the position of our gigantic friend. A short time since, who slept so soundly as peaceful John ? He was at the mercy of every friend or foe ; all his arsenals existed only by favour of the indifference of his neigh- bours, and his guards were prepared to march out of London directly it should be telegraphed that any body of foreign troops had manifested an intention to march in. Suddenly, however, while John is dreaming that he is shorn in the hands of the Philistines, he re...

ALDERMAN OREILLY'S MOTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 22 July 1854

ALDERMAN   O'REILLY'S MOTION. The man from whom we expect the least, we often get the greatest good : so it is with Mr. O'Reilly, one of the "junior Aldermen," who, as member of the Municipal Council, assembled on Tues- day last, so far committed himself, in his honest zeal for the public good, - in not rendering "honor to whom honor is   due ;" in overleaping the bar of prudence and encroaching on the sacred ground of long-held office - to offend the man, by simple question, whose head we must suppose has grown grey in the Muni- cipal Office. Really we gave Alderman O'Reilly credit for a greater amount of prudent respect. Sat only three times, and the easy-going Council is to be suddenly assailed with this "ill-timed" motion.   We wonder has not the august body enacted a law to punish such a flagrant   offence? If not, we beg the forbear-   ance of the sage Council on behalf of the "junior member," it is his first off...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE HOBARTON MERCURY. MAINE LIQUOR LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 22 July 1854

TO THE EDITOR OF THE HOBARTON MERCURY. MAINE LIQUOR LAW Sir, It is a most singular thing that when any new toy is introduced into the Australian Colo- nies it frequently gets well dandled and puffed about until it becomes more familiar, and conse- quently loses much of its pretensions. Of late we have had refrigerant tee-totallers, advocates for total abstinence, and maine liquor law lecturers ; and their meetings have not been scantily attended. These missionaries from the Puseyite schools of temperance in Maine, by collections, and by elaborite harangues, have endeavoured to achieve in Van Dieman's Land that which they could not effect either in New Brunswick or Boston, or the neighbouring States of Maine, namely, the annihilation of drunk- enness. Maine, and that only nominally, accepts the prohibitory law of all intoxicating liquors. And it is not wonderful that she should do this. We should not be at all astonished if the Huon sawyers to a man were to protest against the in- tr...

INSOLVENT COURT. Before Mr. Commissioner Browne. THRUSDAY, JULY 20TH, 1854. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 22 July 1854

INSOLVENT COURT. Before Mr. Commissioner Browne Thrusday, July 20th, 1854. Re J. H. Brookes, adjourned first meeting of creditors, and meeting for discharge. James Soper first meeting of creditors for proof of debts, Mr. Brewer appearing for insolvent. Mr. Harris, for Mr. Wright, of Oatlands, claimed for the sum of £40. This case,though a trivial one, caused cer much examination, part in consequence of tain articles not named in the schedule, but in possession of the insolvent, stated to bt the property of Mr. D. Bacon, on loan to insolvent, and partly from an alleged con- fession of the insolvent, that he could pay, but that he should have to go in debt the next six months. The next appointed meet- ing was not to be that of discharge. William Coote, first meeting of creditors, and for proof of debts. Mr. Laughton for the insolvent. The debts proved were : John Hole, bill of exchange for £138, to which there was a set-oft of £7. David Hoy, principal and interest on a bill of ex- cha...

ARMAMENT OF THE NATIONAL VESSELS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 22 July 1854

ARMAMENT of the NATIONAL' VESSELS. The Washington Star of the 12th instant, speaking of the doings at the navy yard at that place, says-"The principal work going on at present is in the manufacturing of water and powder tanks, and in the preparation of eight-inch shells, to be sent to the se- veral other navy yards, for the arma- ment of our national vessels. One of the most original and curious articles fabricated here is the the anchor for the buoys used in the revenue service, both the buoys and the anchors being made in large quantities. These latter are round, and bear not the slightest resem- blance to those used for ships ; indeed, as they lie about the yard, one would take them, were it not for their large size, to be immense shells, which they appear to resemble at the first glance. Machinery is now employed in the work of filling percussion caps with the fulminating mercury. It is done in a very neat manner, and without any danger of injury from explosion, if it should occ...

Local Intelligence New Agents. -- Mr. James Pross, District Constable, Green Ponds, and Mr. Henry Berres- ford, District Constable, Brown's River, have been appointed agents for this journal. WARNING to Publicans. - Yesterday, Mr. Henry Brittain, landlord of the Commercial Inn. Collins-st, was fined £20 and costs, for an infrac- tion of the Licensing Act in allowing tippling on his premises during the hours of divine service on Sunday afternoon, the 16th instant. The de- fendant, through his legal adviser, Mr. Brewer, pleaded guilty, and urged extenuating circum- stances in mitigation, but with little effect. Caution to Draymen. - At the [p]olice office yesterday, a drayman named James Who- laghan was fined 40s. and 8s. 6d. costs, upon the information of Mr. D. C. Thorpe, for a breach of the Town's Police Act, in riding upon the dray in Elizabeth-street on the 14th instant.

AMERICAN OPINION OF THE MAINE LIQUOR LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 26 July 1854

AMERICAN OPINION OF THE MAINE LIQUOR LAW. Tile poor distiller! How I pitied. him, for he had outlived everything but his avarice. But why call bim poor? Look at the records of those who pay the highest taxes, and you will find he stands highly rated upon the list. Yet he was poor, and if he told you the honest truth, he would admit it, for he was bankrupt in a certain manly consciousness that his traffic was not a very honourable onej and of course his gains were more than questionable. When he was a young man, he used to talk about " our distillery, anti boast of the profits of the trade. The old dingy counting-room was o' sanctum, where a small crate of crockery stood under the desk, in which were common tumblers, proof glasses, and occasionally a decanter was interspersed among the dusty straw, and Mr, Stubbs used to take out his red bandanna1, and wipe the dust from his glassware, and tell Michael to bring in a proof of the excellence of the manufactured article, and then the af...

THE DEFENCES OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 26 July 1854

THE DEFENCES OP AUSTRALIA. The Russians have at this moment a formidable squadron in the waters of the Pacific. The Australian colonies alone form a profitable point of attack, and their utter defencelcssness is in inverse propor- tion to their national value. Any one who knows what the defences of Sydney are, would laugh at the idea of their having any [effect on a hostile squadron. Mel- bourne, the mammon capital, has no guns * except those borrowed the other day from Van Diemen's Land to shoot down the Bendigo miners, who silenced the artillery by knight er. ^ We never heard that Adelaide possessed anything in the ehape of a gun. Yan Die men's Land, it is true, has its " battery" like Sydney, the two batteries being no doubt equally efficient. Yet Sydney, and at no great expense either, might be made a second Gibraltar, as those acquainted with the position of its " Heads" well know. If these were pro- perly fortified, no ship Could pass with any reasonable hope of being kept afl...
